I selected the KCP language program because I wanted to immerse myself in Japanese culture. I wanted to improve my Japanese, and there are glowing reviews of the teachers at KCP. The final verdict was decided when I looked up how much the program costs, and I realized that the short-term summer program is significantly more affordable than many other programs.

Pair work was very helpful to me, since it took some of the pressure off of going one by one around the room in front of the class, or even the anxiety of raising a hand to ask the sensei a question. Though there were quite a lot of tests, I felt they were helpful as well.

KCP is definitely an effective program if you want to improve your Japanese and are willing to put in the time and effort that they expect. For those with some knowledge of Japanese already.

Charles from Summer Short 2016

I liked the trip to Yamanashi the most. It provided a very different view of Japan compared to Tokyo. The village, shrine, and individual experiences were all very great to experience.
